About this Waterfall

Walters Falls is located on the Big Head River in the village of Walters Falls. The falls are located next to the beautiful Falls Inn. There are remnants of an old mill a the top and there is a small bridge near the top where you can cross over the river and view the falls from a different perspective. The falls have been estimated to be about 14 m in height. Access is very easy, as you can park almost right next to the falls. But be aware that this parking lot belongs to the Inn, so please be discreet. There are weddings held here, so don't be that person in jean shorts that ruins someone's photos!

If you walk across the footbridge above the falls, turn right and follow the path along the far side of the gorge. The trail will eventually descend to the river. Turn right and walk back up stream to the base of the falls. Accessing this area is safe, it's just that the hill can be muddy on the way down when it's been wet.
